Today, I posted the model to the Google 3D Warehouse • Rotegrity Springs

Rotegrity_springs(public).jpg

The posted version has been updated, to reflect the latest changes; to adjust/refine angles & follow-me paths. I'll keep the Warehouse edition updated, so you only have to look there for the latest changes (although, I think I've found all errors, and refined it as much as I can.)

Oh, Taff, that's just BEAUTIFUL!
Thanks so much for sharing the model, if I get a chance to use/render it, I'll post back.

Thanks, Fletch. You're gracious for saying that.

I'm currently playing with render-material variations, myself...

Are all the edges of that nexdome the same length? i want to build this in real, but then with those long toothpicks for meat.

All the "copper" springs are the same, and all the "silver" ones are the same.

Note, however, that the 3-way "splits" are NOT equal.  Since this is based on a 5-frequency geodesic tessellation of an icosahedron (frequency 5v{1,4} to be specific,)  the three straight sections of the copper springs are different lengths.  The straight sections of the silver springs are of two lengths -- one in the center, with the two ends being the same.

CORRECTION:   I forgot that my last refinement (the most problematic, time-consuming exercise)  was to make the three-angle subdivision for each spring EQUAL.  Therefore, the three lengths (chords)  between geodesic nodes, for each spring, are identical.  Note, however, that the two springs don't share the same chord lengths.  The silver chords are 0.2834, and the copper chords are 0.2523, when the radius of the sphere (to the nodes)  is 1.0000.


The CENTER of each coil corresponds with a "node" of the geodesic tessellation.
